Celebrate Grandparents and the Elderly


The message of Pope Francis is: Do not cast me off in my old age.

The Holy Father’s message is available here.
Express our love and appreciation for grandparents and elderly members of families and communities in the most human of ways: by sharing our time and enjoying company.

Our call to action is twofold: we encourage all to make time and visit grandparents and elderly loved ones and, in addition, to express on social media our affection for grandparents and elderly friends with posts using the hashtag #ElderlyandGrandparents.”
